Chiefs News And Rumors 8/26


Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning. Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Chiefs fan, coffee is simply not enough.

Here’s all that’s happening around Chiefs Kingdom this morning.

Welcome to The Morning Fix.

Just in case you missed it, the Chiefs made some big roster cuts last night. Here’s the full list of cuts, courtesy of Darin Gantt of NBC Sports’ Pro Football Talk. Ricky Stanzi and Vince Agnew were the two biggest names on the cut list.

We covered the cuts extensively last night. Again, just in case you missed it, we asked you, the Addicts, to say goodbye on Twitter. You can read those tweets here.

Much has been made about two drives in the last game at Pittsburgh, and those two drives could arguably define the Chiefs 2013 preseason. The first was when Alex Smith led the Chiefs to a touchdown with just seconds left on the clock in the first half. The second, Chase Daniel’s game winning touchdown drive. Head coach Andy Reid discussed those drives, per the Chiefs official press release:

“I thought the guys just kept competing and thought the quarterbacks held that together. I thought Alex (Smith), in the first half, had that drive that you’re talking about and did a nice job of keeping everything composed and accurate. I felt that in overtime, Chase (Daniel) did the same time. They both made plays when they needed to make plays. I thought overall the offensive line did a nice job in the first and second group of protecting, and I thought they played good, physical football.”

He also discussed Eric Fisher’s progress this offseason, which is an extremely interesting topic:

“I’ve been happy with his progress. He’s been banged a little in his hand and shoulder, and he’s worked through that, which a lot of guys wouldn’t do. A lot of guys wouldn’t be able to push themselves mentally, and he’s done that. He has continued to get better at the same time. He came out against, what I thought was a good defensive front and I thought played very well.”

Fisher has had an up and down preseason, mostly because of those injuries. He’s going to be a huge part of this team moving forward though, so his progression and growth will be watched closely by Addicts all across Chiefs Kingdom.

    I watched Fisher during the Ateelets game and he did well. There were no major gaffs and he Is definately getting better at his position

    Fisher is a rookie and just needs some time to develop. After all, he is playing a position his hasn’t played for awhile. He is a mountain of a man so when he gets his technique and timing fine tuned a little he will be a formible force for a defensive linemen to deal with.
